Cannes Yachting Festival

Pardo GT75, the latest Pardo Yachts’ 23-metre addition

/////

At the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022, Pardo Yachts unveiled its new flagship, the Pardo GT75, which is positioned between the Walkaround and Endurance ranges.

Pardo GT75, a villa on the high seas

Pardo-GT75The new high-performance 75-footer is the new flagship of the Pardo Yachts fleet and is positioned between the Walkaround and Endurance ranges.

The spaces and volumes of the latest GT from the Forlì-based shipyard have been designed for those owners who want to live the yacht like a floating villa in total relaxation, with interiors and exteriors suitably designed to enjoy a privileged sailing experience.

Versatility is one of the GT75’s key features: compared to her little sister the GT52, the Pardo GT75 increases the layout possibilities, both for interior and exterior spaces.

The communication of these spaces materializes thanks to the aft door, which can be fully opened combined with the roof in semi-open mode, the sliding doors to both passages and the side windows that can be opened.

The deep-V hull guarantees both safety at sea and sailing comfort, while maintaining a special focus on sustainability: the aim is always to create a perfect harmony with the environment in which the owners will be sailing.

Four different engines while waiting for the hybrid

The lines of the Pardo GT75 have been designed by Zuccheri Yachts Design, while the Nauta Design studio has handled the interiors and exteriors. There is a wide range of engines available: starting with the standard 3 x D13 IPS 900 and then going up to the 1050, 1200 or 1350, with an engine room already prepared for the Volvo hybrid engine upgrade, a solution that allows high performance to be achieved with a reduced impact on the marine environment.

A configuration for everyone

At the Cannes Yachting Festival thePardo-GT75_Tender-garage two aft area layouts of the Pardo GT75 were unveiled, enhancing its versatility.

The “Tender” version, as the name suggests, can accommodate a tender in the garage underneath the sundeck, which is raised by an electric mechanism.

In the “Beach” version, the entire aft area is transformed into a terrace overlooking the sea, from which there is private access to the owner’s cabin. This is a true suite furnished and designed with extreme care, with a privileged view of breathtaking panoramas and awakenings. When the aft deck is uncluttered, it can be fitted out as desired, with free-standing furnishings making the space even more versatile: beach area by day, terrace overlooking the sea for cocktails and parties at sunset.

Both configurations include the option of fold-down side terraces, which increase the space on board the Pardo GT75 even further. The walkaround character of the new Pardo Yacht flagship is reflected in the side decks, which rise up to deck level to create a very large flush area for relaxation in the bow, where there is a living area with a C-shaped sofa, a table and a generous sundeck amidships.

Elegant and functional interior

The main deck of the Pardo GT75 combines aesthetic and functional features, to guarantee comfort on board even during long cruises, especially when there are guests, who are welcomed by high quality materials and bright environments, thanks to the presence of large windows. On the GT75 too, the interiors are available in a galley-up or galley-down version, to allow the owner to experience the yacht either in a more convivial or more private manner.

In the galley-up version, the main deck features a superbly equipped galley, in front of which a comfortable L-shaped sofa with dining table can accommodate up to 7 guests. The connection with the outdoor dining area in the cockpit makes the main deck one large space to be enjoyed at all times of the day.

In the galley-down layout, on the other hand, the main deck houses a huge living area, equipped with large sofas, which, thanks to the roof in semi-open mode, the side windows and the sliding aft door, provides guests with continuous contact with the sea. In this version, the well-equipped galley is located below deck amidships, allowing the boat to be enjoyed throughout the year.

Pardo-GT75_LowerDeck

Exclusive and quiet sleeping zone

owner's cabinThe layout of the lower deck is no less versatile and different solutions have been designed for the sleeping area as well.

As already mentioned the owner’s cabin in the “Beach” version becomes a real suite, while in the “Tender Garage” version, on the other hand, the same cabin is accessible from the internal staircase, like the rest of the sleeping area.

Space varies according to requirements: the lower deck configuration is designed to accommodate two, three or four cabins, for a total of 10 berths (including a double crew cabin). The standard version of the yacht is the three-cabin, three-bathroom configuration, where the study of the environments has led to the creation of balanced and furnished spaces worthy of larger yachts.

The shipyard’s various proposals designed for this 75 footer make it possible to enjoy the time spent on board in direct contact with the sea in an elegant and exclusive setting.

Pardo GT75: open soul, utmost comfort

But there’s more beyond the premiere of the GT75: in fact, at Pardo Yachts, development has already begun on the Pardo 75, which will be the T-Top version of the flagship. This is a completely open model, which follows the evolution of the Walkaround range.

Le novità non finiscono con l’anteprima del GT75: infatti, in casa Pardo Yachts sono già iniziati gli sviluppi di Pardo 75, che rappresenterà la versione T-Top dell’ammiraglia. Si tratta di un modello completamente open, che segue l’evoluzione della gamma Walkaround.

Otam 58 GTS, the ‘bad boy’ of the sea gets a makeover

//////

The restyling of the Otam 58 GTS has been entrusted to Giuseppe Bagnardi of BG Design Firm. Both performance and interior and exterior comfort have been improved.

New Otam 58 GTS

Hull no. 26 of the iconic Otam 58 GTS, named ‘Bad Boy’, made its world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022. The restyling enhances the sporty character that everyone expects on an Otam yacht and strengthens its stylistic content, while maintaining its recognisability and respecting the shipyard’s DNA.

Hedonism and functionality

OTAM-58GTS-deckThe Italian BG Design Firm, commissioned to update the design, has not only thought about hedonistic shapes but also functional ones: for example, two new air intakes integrated in the hardtop improve ventilation in the engine room, which is immediately accessible thanks to the hydraulic hatch that guarantees safety and immediate accessibility to the systems.

Two more air intakes positioned on the foredeck, on the other hand, are Otam‘s hallmarks.

The new motor yacht from the Genoese shipyards offers an en plein air sensation thanks to the windscreen and wraparound windows that distinguish the semi-open deckhouse but, at the same time, eliminate the disadvantages of a pure open, offering instead constant protection from the sun and wind. This solution provides a more aerodynamic profile and reduces turbulence to ensure better performance and greater comfort on board at very high speeds.

In the enclosed cockpit, there is a bar, a corner sofa and a comfortable dining area as well as two sundecks aft with a central passageway.

The bathing platform and drainage grates located in the transom have also been redesigned: the latter is now integrated and hidden in the boat’s name.

Below deck, on the other hand, the Otam 58 GTS has two double cabins, each with its own head. There is also an open plan galley and a third single cabin for a guest or crew member.

Bad Boy” Performance

The nickname “Bad Boy” OTAM-58GTS-interiorand the suffix GTS justify the character and intended use of the Otam 58 GTS: the yacht is built to achieve high performance, thanks to the two MTU 1825 hp engines coupled with ASD14 Arneson thrusters, which allow it to reach a cruising speed of 48 knots in total comfort and a top speed of 55.

What is unchanged is the high-performance hull by Tagliavini Marine Design, built using a mix of Aramat and vinylester resin to guarantee total safety and high comfort even at high speeds in all sea conditions.

As with all Otam creations, customisation is paramount and the Otam 58 GTS is built to the owner’s countless specifications, including a Böning dashboard for the helm station.

Specialization, research, flexibility, iconic design, out-of-the-ordinary performance and exceptional efficiency are the values and characteristics that distinguish Otam after 67 years of history and the 58 GTS is no exception,” explains Matteo Belardinelli, Otam’s Sales & Communication DirectorThis is a perfect project for Otam, the ideal shipyard for a client who desires and obtains Total Freedom of Expression combined with performance and efficiency that is unrivalled in all sea conditions.”

Felci Yacht: at Cannes with two new projects

/////

Felci Yacht was present at the Cannes Yachting Festival with two new Custom projects designed for ICE yachts- a yard specializing in building exclusive custom-built yachts in very small series – and its latest project for Dufour Yachts, the new ‘entry level’ of the famous French shipyard specialising in large series production.

Apparently therefore two different production worlds with two different types of customers.

How do you combine these two worlds within a single design studio?

Bringing together these two worlds, these two ways of interpreting both design and the project as a whole, is certainly not something that can be improvised.

felci-cannes

We have been fortunate enough to have had to relate to these two realities from our very beginnings; we have always had to split our time between making unique products, communicating directly with the end customer, and designing boats, both racing and cruising, destined to be reproduced in multiple units.

How is it possible to combine the technical requirements necessary to produce a custom-made project down to executive detail with those of easy production and product transversality necessary for a project intended for series production?

felci-underwayIt’s true, the two types of design are very different, both in concept and technical terms.

On the one hand, there is the need to create a unique, custom-made object, tailored for the customer, while respecting the peculiarities and traditions of the shipyard; on the other hand, there is the need to create an economically sustainable product, easy to mass-produce, but not lacking in those aesthetic and functional values that today’s market can no longer give up.

In order to succeed in combining these requirements, which at times may even appear to be opposing, a very broad competence is needed, which makes it possible to dialogue constructively with the various players involved, and also the ability to weigh up, evaluate and know how to carry out the various choices with balance.

What is your connection with the creations of Felci Yacht, once your designs are turned into reality?

We feel that our designs generate what will become the life, the character of the boat or boats that will be born in the future.

In a way, beyond all the requests we receive, we like to think that we are the ones who give a certain DNA to a project and thus to a real object.

Clearly, during the development of the project there will be the necessary mediations, the necessary balances linked to the world of production with which we will be dealing, but certainly the ability to dialogue with the clients first, and then with the workers is one of the most difficult and most fascinating aspects of this job.

How much gratification does your presence at Cannes give you?

The new cannes-yachting-festivalprojects that are presented by Felci Yacht here at Cannes certainly give meaning to our work, not just that of the yard that physically builds them.

It seems clear to me that successful products, as we hope those of Ice Yachts and Dufour will be, are such thanks to the experience and commitment of so many entities.

Design, by definition, is carried out first and therefore has the specific task of drawing the guidelines that the rest of the process must then follow.

This does not mean imposing one’s own choices and personal vision of the product, but working with a clear responsibility for one’s role and what, if well managed, it can bring to the product.

Bringing dreams to water, Groupe Beneteau presents its future projects at the Cannes Yachting Festival

///

Following the previous year success, Groupe Beneteau joined the 45th Cannes Yachting Festival, renewing its appointment with the On the Horizon event on September 5 to announce the corporate vision, the new ambitions and projects and the latest product innovations.

Opening the event, Gianguido Cirotti, Groupe Beneteau Boat Division CEO, announced the group’s new slogan, which condenses its visions and ambitions into a few words: ‘Bringing dreams to water’.

Groupe Beneteau is specialized in Groupe-Beneteau-sailing-monohullthe production of sailing and motor-powered boats from 5.5 to 24 metres that are distributed over four strategic segments: dayboating, real estate on the water, monohull and multihull. Their brands are Beneteau, Jeanneau, Prestige, Delphia, Four Winns, Wellcraft, Scarab and Glastron.

Erik Stromberg, Vice-President of Power & Motor Yacht Development announced that 15 new models have been launched in the dayboating segment, including JEANNEAU Cap Camarat 10.5 CC, JEANNEAU Merry Fisher 1295, JEANNEAU DB/43, FOUR WINNS TH36, WELLCRAFT 355 and PRESTIGE M48.

Nothing embodies real estate like a multihull and Prestige has decided to blaze a path into the world of catamarans – said Erik Stromberg – It is a natural step for a brand that has been focused on providing the best on board experience. From the luxury of space to the enhanced stability, the M48 perfectly completes the Prestige product offering. A true motor yacht, on a multihull platform. 

Following the success of the X70, Prestige is also launching the new X60. The conference continued with Damien Jacob, Vice-President of Sailboat Development, presenting the new EXCESS 14 and LAGOON 51. In the monohull segment, the Jeanneau Yachts 55, the BENETEAU Oceanis 60 and, above all, the BENETEAU First 44, a historic line now celebrating its 45th anniversary, were presented.

Sustainable yachting in the Groupe Beneteau’s vision

Groupe Beneteau pays close attention to the sustainability of its projects. Revealing the different approaches Gianguido Girotti, Boat Division CEO, explained:

On the HorizonOn the product development side, we are currently focused on reducing the environmental impact in two key areas: composite materials and propulsion systems”.

For the launch of the First 44, a special team was formed to work together with French manufacturer Arkema to build a hull made exclusively of recycled resin. The same treatment will also be reserved for building two prototypes of the Mini 6.6 racing sailboat.

A further step was taken with regard to propulsion by collaborating with three companies: Vision Marine Technologies, Torqeedo and Volvo Penta.

We decided to change the way we produce our small composite parts and we introduced a new bio-sourced resin and natural fiber to replace the classic one. We also decided to look at the energy consumption at our plants. We have decided to collaborate with a local actor called Vendée Energie to install 4 hectares of photovoltaic shadehouse over all the parking lots at our production sites. – concluded Gianguido Girotti.

Groupe Beneteau: Digitalization

Last year Groupe Beneteau presented SEANAPPS. Today, 2,000 boats are equipped and sailing around the world, and by September 2023, every single boat leaving the plants worldwide will be also equipped with the app.  Moreover, it will be available also to every existing boat maintained in the Group’s dealers’ network.

At Groupe Beneteau, digitalization in not just a department to look good and speak to the new generation. Digitalization transpires to every single entity to align on one goal: offer a unique 360° online & offline experience to every single one of our customers” explained Clement Douet, Vice-President for Digital Business.

Bruno Thivoyon, Groupe Beneteau CEO, concluded the press conference coming back on the key messages and on the ambitious and rational product roadmap.

Fabiani Yacht at the Cannes Yachting Festival: all the formulas for premium hybrid yachts

/////

Fabiani Yacht: the most innovative elements on display on models

At the Cannes Yachting Festival we had the opportunity to chat with engineer Maurizio Fabiani, who explained some of the details that make his yachts truly unique in our opinion. From the engineer’s pencil came two lines of superyachts that differ in the type of propulsion, classic and hybrid, which in turn are available in 70, 77, 100 and 101 lengths. On display at Fabiani’s booth at the Palais des Festivales were models, all extremely well made, which managed to attract the attention of many visitors, most of whom were stunned by such a futuristic project.

Fabiani Yacht electric carIn all models, the stern platform also serves as a gangway, and it can be raised up to the flybridge or lowered up to one metre underwater thanks to a patented rail system, facilitating operations such as launching and hauling a tender.

Even, as seen from the scale model, it is possible to park a small electric car in the garage, aligning the platform to the dock.

We were really amazed by the Fabiani Yacht Hybrid 101′ with its majestic structural sail: it is a surface covered in solar panels that can also propel the yacht with the force of the wind, assisting in electric navigation and reducing consumption.

Despite the hesitations, structural sailengineer Fabiani has already demonstrated through numerous calculations the safety and rigidity of such a rigid structure that can withstand wind gusts of 100 km/h.

Anyway, the boat is equipped with an alarm system that automatically closes the structural sail and the other solar panels if needed.

The solar panels are positioned on both sides of the structure that juts out between decks. In the upper part, the classic solar panels absorb direct sunlight, while in the lower part the amorphous solar panels absorb reflected light from the sea at the expense of lower efficiency.

We were delighted to hear that work on the Wedgeline Hybrid 77, whose keel was laid in April, is progressing smoothly, and that we will be able to see the first hull in the water in about a year and a half. Honestly, we are looking forward to it.

Hanse Group: huge success at the Cannes Yachting Festival

//////

Hanse Yachts, the world-famous shipyard founded in 1990 and headquartered in Greifswald, Germany, met with considerable success during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022, where it presented two world premieres: Fjord 53 XL and Sealine S390. Hanse Group owns no less than six brands, all of which are well-known: Delher, Moody, Fjord, Sealine and Rick Yachts, plus of course its own brand, Hanse Yacht AG.

Fjord 53 XL

Fjord-53XLAfter the success of the 41 XL with more than 100 units sold in one year, the Norwegian-inspired brand is riding the wave of success by presenting the new flagship of the Hanse-owned brand, the Fjord 53 XL, a powerboat that refines the popular elements of the smaller predecessor and recently named European Power Boat of the Year. The helm station features three 19-inch screens and as many cupholders in front of the helm seats. Above it, the largest T-top in this category is supported by sturdy pillars, which leave the walkaround more free and contribute to the boat’s stability by integrating into the railings. The exterior layout includes two galleys on each side, leaving space for a seating area with two adjustable tables that can seat up to 9 guests; alternatively, a U-shaped sofa with an electric table can be opted for. The cockpit provides a sunbathing area for 4 people and a garage for a tender or water toys.

The Fjord 53 XL is also equipped with an external cabin, accessible from the cockpit, which in its standard version is used as a storage room, but can also be fitted out as a crew cabin, equipped with a wardrobe, head, sink and an outlet for ventilation. It can also be fitted with air conditioning and a TV. The interior has three possible configurations:

  • a master cabin with a double bed, a guest cabin with two single beds, a crew cabin and an atrium with an entrance to the master cabin

  • a master cabin with a double bed, a guest cabin with two single beds, a crew cabin and an atrium with an entrance to the master cabin and two entrances to the master bathroom

  • a master cabin with a double bed, a guest cabin with two single beds, a storage room and an atrium with an entrance to the master cabin and the master bathroom

Power comes from two Volvo Penta IPS 700s or alternatively the more powerful IPS 800s; the starting price is 1,329,000 euros.

Fjord-53XL-exteriorHanse-Fjord-53-XL-cockpit

Hanse Sealine S390

SEALINE-S390-EXTERIORWith the launch of this new model, the Hanse Group fills the ‘gap’ between the S335 and the S430, bringing to the market a middle way designed for more intelligent use of exterior and interior space. The S390 does not sacrifice room size, even though it is part of the sports line, and features the largest cockpit in its class. The hull has a V-shape and, again, numerous windows to encourage natural light. The helm station is protected by a canopy supported, again, by pillars that integrate into the bulwarks. Parallel to the stern platform, there is an L-shaped sofa and a small table.

Towards the stern, the canopy incorporates a bimini, two hatches or an electric sunroof that can be opened above the helm, and side windows allow fresh air and sunlight to enter. To port is the galley area with a refrigerator and two gas or electric cookers and an optional gas grill. On the starboard side, on the other hand, there is a sink and plenty of space for dishes and pots and pans. A barbecue can be positioned behind the seats and operated from the stern platform. Another possible option is a longer, hydraulically movable stern platform.

The master cabin, with its king-size bed, is lit from four directions thanks to the large windows. The L-shaped sofa in the saloon can be used as a bed to accommodate an extra guest if required. The guest cabin has two single beds.

The engines that the Hanse Group has planned for this model in the sports line are two Volvo Pena D4 Duodrops or, alternatively, the D6s, also Duodrops. The starting price is EUR 398,600.

Now the Hanse Group is preparing for the presentation of the Hanse 510 at the Barcelona Boat Show from 12 to 16 October 2022.

 

MAR-CO at Cannes Yachting Festival: ready to launch the new R-Evolution 26

////

MAR-CO, a famous boatyard based in Muggiò, Italy, is present at the Cannes Yachting Festival with two of its inflatable boats, the E-MOTION 36 and the R-EVOLUTION 35. The first is powered by twin Mercury 450Rs while the second is powered by twin Mercury 300s. At 10.70 metres in length, the MAR-CO E-MOTION 36 impresses with its large aft dinette area and retractable electric table, while the R-EVOLUTION 35, the most popular with customers, is the flagship of the shipyard’s range, also appreciated for its ample space on deck, dinette, and bow sundeck.

MAR-CO-E-MOTION-32MAR-CO is also ready for the Genoa Boat Show, where it will be present with no less than four inflatables, one of which will have its world debut. These are the models already exhibited in Cannes, with the addition of the E-MOTION 32 powered by two Mercury 300s and the brand-new R-EVOLUTION 26 equipped with a Mercury 450R. In its 8 metres, the latter encompasses all the technical and qualitative features of the R-EVOLUTION 35, including the retractable ladder and the fibreglass T-Top which, custom-designed and present in its predecessors, is a choice not to be taken for granted on boats of this size. The choice of the single-engine was almost obligatory, but more than welcome: just think of all the extra space that MAR-CO has managed to obtain in the stern platform, as large as that of the E-MOTION 32 to be precise. To fit into the 8-metre range, however, the electric table had to be dispensed with, as its piston would have stolen too much space from the fuel tank.

The R-EVOLUTION 26 is a concentrate of quality and aims to be qualitatively superior to other open RIBs of the same size. Attracted by this unusual formula, we are looking forward to admiring and testing the latest addition to the Italian boatyard.

Ampermarine chosen by Lomac: the revolutionary WUWLED spotlights on an inflatable of the historic shipyard

////

Ampermarine presents the new WUWLED spotlights at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022, attracting great interest from the shipbuilding industry. Thanks to their special feature of obtaining underwater lights through electrical induction, without perforating the hull, they enable shipyards to install these accessories much more easily and, above all, they allow less invasive refitting of boats, excluding holes in the hull and thus reducing the risk of saltwater infiltration and continuous maintenance. For this reason, Lomac, an important Milan-based shipyard with 60 years of experience in the sector, has chosen to install Ampermarine’s WUWLED spotlights, following the owner’s request, on its latest 7-metre tender.

Ampermarine-underwater-spotlightsDuring the Cannes Yachting Festival, we met Paolo Lo Manto, Lomac’s Development Director, who explained the reasons for this choice: “Beyond the LED’s performance, the most obvious benefit is avoiding holes in the hull where the water pressures generated in the area are important. Furthermore, when maintenance work has to be carried out, it is essential that the product is practical in order to intervene more easily in the future. In any case, you don’t run the risk of having to dismantle and create yet another infiltration route for the water,” Paolo continued. “I have perceived a practicality and peace of mind, both for myself and at the shipyard: it is the peace of mind that there is no risk of inconvenience on a product that has to work and be fixed, if necessary, as quickly as possible. I don’t even see the risk of failure; there are structural adhesives with which we fix the T-Tops and if my roof can withstand 50 knots of wind, I don’t see why the spotlight shouldn’t withstand the pressures of water”.

Ampermarine continues to research and design accessories dedicated to marine lighting and control panels thanks to an in-house research laboratory where the company’s technicians continue to develop new innovative products. Thanks also to the Italian distributor Supeyacht, Ampermarine intends to offer a wide range of advanced products by expanding its presence in the yachting world. In fact, the group will also participate in the Ibex in Tampa Bay, Florida, from 27 to 29 September at booth 3-335.

CMC Marine at the Cannes Yachting Festival: increasingly present on megayachts

///

CMC Marine, an increasingly important company in the field of electric stabilizers, joins the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022 with some of its products from the Stabilis Electra, Thrusters and Steering Systems range. The Italian company is actually the first to have developed and manufactured electric fin stabilizers which, thanks to their reliability and the recent Argo system, are being installed on many boats, from 12-metre units up to mega-yachts of up to 80 metres. Furthermore, important agreements have been signed in recent years, such as with Saim and Eliche Radice; in short, the future of electric stabilizers is brighter than ever.

CMC Marine thrusterThe Stabilis Electra family of stabilizers is designed for boats over 18 metres in length and at the CMC Marine booth at the Palais des Festivals we were able to see one of its representatives, the HS 60, for lengths between 23 and 35 metres.

We were also amazed after seeing a STAB 25, a fin from the latest ultra-compact Waveless line suitable for boats between 15 and 24 metres, in operation. The new range is suitable for boats from 12 to 40 metres and is distinguished by high compactness, low maintenance and high energy efficiency. The booth also housed a TP20 and a DIRECTA 80, a thruster and a steering system respectively. The latter are also easy to install and low-noise.

HS-60CMC-DIRECTA-80The next important appointment for the company will be the Monaco Yacht Show, from 28 September to 1 October, where they will bring an HS160, one of the largest fin stabilizers for superyachts over 50 metres. All CMC products boast excellent compatibility and integration with many third-party products thanks to the Argo software, launched in 2020, which provides better course control, reducing fuel consumption and making navigation more comfortable. Argo is currently installed on several yachts and super yachts and demonstrates the excellent capabilities of CMC Marine’s research and development department in creating cutting-edge products.

Filippetti Sport 55 Grey Version: the new, eye-catching version is on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022

/////

With the Sport 55, Filippetti has succeeded in best expressing what the new generation of yachts and future owners want from a boat: sportiness and power, while not sacrificing comfort. At the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022, the Italian shipyard is exhibiting the latest addition to the range, the Sport 55 Grey Version, even sportier and more dynamic, resulting from the collaboration with the new French dealer Jan Lambrecht.

All the yachts Sport-55-Grey-renderproduced by Filippetti Yacht are extremely customizable, both in their interiors and exteriors, and are built with top quality materials by the best Italian craftsmen. In this way each unit produced is unique and you will never have the feeling of owning the same mass-produced boat as another owner.

We had the opportunity to visit the work progress of this latest model directly at the yard, where the exterior colouring had already amazed us enough, but now that we have seen it finished, it is another story.

In the Sport 55 Grey Version, customization concepts have been taken to the extreme thanks to the powerful grey and eye-catching black colouring of the hull and superstructure. The latter is made of carbon fibre, making the boat lighter and consequently more powerful and faster.

Filippetti interior designThe interiors, chosen by Davide Cipriani of Centro Stile Design, are an essence designed by designer Piero Lissoni and offer character and elegance to the spaces and surfaces.

The orange of the cushions creates a pleasant chromatic contrast with the grey and black of the rest of the boat, making the stay on board almost relaxing despite the general “aggressiveness” of the boat.

The Grey Version is powered by MAN V8 1200HP engines and an Arneson Surface Drive propulsion system, capable of a cruising speed of 40 knots and a maximum speed of 46.5.

The Sport 55 Grey Version can be seen until the end of the show, where it will be on display in the Pantiero area (PAN013- PAN212). Boat tours can be scheduled by writing to :sales@filippettiyacht.com
